Hello,

Before I go on I will post this link:
http://groups.google.ca/group/alt.a...838?q=trunk+wont+open&rnum=1#19166bebe5fe3838

I am encountering this exact problem, my trunk is jammed shut, keys
won't work, the wireless release won't work and I can't fold down the
rear seats because the release mechanism is in the trunk (brilliant!).

Yes I am going to have to take it in to get it fixed, but right now I
have something important in my trunk I need to get out ASAP! For those
who are curious ... its a laser printer ink cartrige which cost me
$100.

My question is ... can I get into the trunk easily somehow by
disassembling the rear seat so I can get my stuff out? Or is there an
easy way to release the rear seats from inside the car. There HAS to
be a way to get in there. I mean ... how else would a mechanic get
into my trunk to fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Shaun

I've seen parking garage attendants use a long handled soda fountain spoon.
They make a ¼" right angle bend at the end of the spoon handle, and use it
to wedge the claws away from the striker pin.

Happy modeming,
Bill
